Itâs our last episode of 2014 so we take the opportunity to celebrate the best films we've reviewed on the podcast this year, and our favourite performances, which includes a surprising Supporting Actress win from Pete. This week's reviews include the Biblical epic "Exodus: Gods and Kings" and Angelina Jolie's audacious survival tale "Unbroken," while Pete caught Jimi Hendrix biopic "Jimi: All Is By My Side." We discuss fradulent artist drama "Big Eyes," starring Amy Adams, while we assess Julianne Moore's bid for a long overdue Oscar in heavy-going Alzheimer's tale "Still Alice." Elsewhere, the death of the last remaining acting Oscar winner from the 1930s resurrects a common complaint, we scrutinize this year's Foreign Language Oscar race some more, there's a Razzie-level performance in one of this week's films, and the podcast is interrupted by the children and dogs in Cal's packed household.
